far too much writing, far too many photos

Here, in a nutshell, is what I think (not that you asked):

I think we’re meant to love, without holding back — open our hearts and let it rip. Not demand things of our partner, just appreciate the hell out of them and savor the days, months, years we’re fortunate enough to have in their company. Because there is no guarantee of how long that span of time will be, and whether it turns out to be brief or blessedly long the point of the game is to love and appreciate. Anything less would be a sad pissing away of a miracle.

You may not agree, and that’s okay –- you get to do it the way you want to (no matter how blinkered). But if I get another shot at all this, I’m going to do my damndest to make that last paragraph my groundrules.

We’ll see if I get another shot.

In the meantime, life goes on.


This morning, Madrid — not an everyday scene in a city where snow rarely falls:

España, te amo.

    Truly profound. I agree, love is something you can't put in a box or wrap in expectations. No demands. Tough at times, but it can be the path to an amazing adventure. …And isn't that what life and love are?
